it feels like my last hump day!

Tomorrow is my last day at the company I have worked for, for two and a half years!!!

As my first "real" job after college, I feel really grateful for all the opportunities I have had to grow, the people I have met and the connections I have made. It hasn't always been easy but it has been a great stepping stone...but honestly I cannot hide how happy I am to move on. Taking some time to focus on our new journey and nanny again is almost too good to be true. I just feel so lucky that I get to be doing something I absolutely love everyday.

This past weekend I visited with the family again that I will be nannying for. They have two girls (3 &1). Our visit was everything I needed to reassure me that I made the right choice. They are the sweetest family.

So on top of meeting with the family again, Jacob and I worked on our room at his parents house. It turned out really cute. We made it our own and actually hung pictures and everything. I love nesting, decorating and organizing. It was so strange how quickly a guest room we always slept in became "ours" in a matter of hours. I kinda love it.

bad iphone pic.

Remember when I made these? That hook is just waiting for my medals :)
(I haven't taken my medals off my desk at work yet.)

You don't have a wine cooler in your bedroom???
I would update you on the rest of the weekend but I can pretty much sum it up by saying...
our awesome friends got married.
they seriously threw one of the best receptions ever (I am still recovering/detoxing).
my dress fit!!! (& DID NOT rip).
my mother in law is awesome because she got me taco bell at 1 am--which is why I was alive and functioning the next day. no doubt.
andddd I even got two great runs in (an 8 miler and a 6 miler)... which were quickly proceeded by fro-yo & time with this cute guy.

Here are some more pictures from the wedding :)

Our Landlords (aka Jake's parents)

Starting next week I hope to be able to focus on the blog again daily. I would really love to continue to grow this space and be able to respond to more of your great comments. So thanks for still reading during this move!!!

I seriously can't believe how different my life will be one week from today : ) AHHH!



  1. Your hair looked amazing at the wedding!
    Oh and yay to nannying, wishing you all the best at your new job!

  2. Your new room looks great! It is always important to have a space to call your own no matter where you live.

    I hope that you love your new job! So exciting!

    1. Thank you!!! I totally agree. I have no idea how long we are staying but it still needs to feel like home for awhile :)

  3. Eee! So exciting friend! You look so pretty in your pictures from the wedding. Do you have a tattoo on your wrist? I kinda saw it in the mirror pic. :) Yay! Life hanging out with kiddos (especially ones that aren't yours permanently haha) is so fun!! Can't wait to hear more!

    1. I completely agree! I love kids especially the ones you can give back :) I can't wait to start!! I do have a tattoo. It is a cross with a design that incorporates two "J" s for my mom and I.

  4. Let me FIRST off say how amazing your MIL is. I don't know if mine could stay up until 1 am, let alone get me Taco Bell. Your room looks so cute, and it's good to hear that you're getting settled. :)

    1. I feel really lucky. Taco Bell equals LOVE in my book :)
